October is famous for Halloween, but did you know that it’s also National Pizza Month?
No matter your favorite topping, you can enjoy a piping hot pizza at an area restaurant:
Zachary’s Chicago Pizza
Zach Zachowski and Barbara Gabel grew up in Wisconsin and later spent several years in Chicago. There they developed a love for deep dish pizza. In the early 1980s, they moved to the San Francisco Bay area with the dream of opening a pizzeria. They found a small place that had room for thirty seats, and it wasn’t long before the restaurant had many loyal customers. Just over twelve months later, Zach and Barbara opened another location to keep up with the demand. To date, the restaurant has won more than 175 “Best Pizza” awards, and favorites among customers include spinach & mushroom, barbecue chicken, and Hawaiian.
Owners Peter and Melissa Swanson opened Benchmark in 2012. Their website states that they believe making food is a craft and ingredients are the core components of good food, which is why the cooks make the pizza, pasta, cheese, sausage, and condiments on site. The thin crust pizzas are approximately eleven inches and are made from yeast dough. They’re covered in light toppings before being baked in an 800-degree oven. Two minutes later, the servers deliver the delicious creations to customers. Choices include fried sage, sausage and sweet peppers, and pancetta and ruby heart figs.
